Ghana international Asamoah Gyan says many former Black Stars players have left the national team unhappy.

The 34-year-old marksman has had his ups and downs with the Black Stars down the years, but he has managed to become the team’s all-time leading goalscorer.

“If we look at things, people leave the national team with pain. There are a lot of players, I can testify. I don’t want to mention names but for me, I am just there,” Gyan said on My Joy Online.

“The people at the top have seen what I have done so if they decide to give me a farewell something, definitely, my soul will be happy. Although people appreciate me it will depend on how to do it.

The prolific striker, who is also Ghana’s most capped player, is not considering retirement from international football.

“I will do my job till the time I am done. I can decide with my team that I will play a testimonial game. GFA can decide that they will do something for me [play a game or something]. It will depend on them,” he continued.

“Secondly it will depend on me on how I want to go about it. For now, I am still in the game but as time goes on, ideas will come.

“I haven’t planned [on how I will exit the Black Stars]. I am still playing. It is natural. I could tell you that I will retire in four years but I can call my brother the next day and tell him that I cannot continue playing,” he added.

“It depends on how the day goes. Every day, the human body changes so let’s see how it goes but for now, I am okay and playing football.”

With six goals, Gyan is the top African goalscorer in the history of the FIFA World Cup and he is currently a free agent after leaving Indian club NorthEast United.
